Neuropathy pain is a bothersome pain. It’s sharp, throbbing, burning pain making the involved
extremity - be it the feet or hands, toes, fingers, legs - sensitive to even
touch. Ottawa neuropathic pain sufferers many times
find themselves using medications
like anticonvulsants and antidepressants and opioids to relieve
neuropathic pain since they are the most commonly
prescribed ones. (1) Some patients react well.
Some experience only minor pain relief. Some can’t
take them due to the adverse
side-effects. The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider understands this annoyance.
The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider assists many Ottawa neuropathy patients
test out other means to pain relief like nutrition
(particularly B vitamins) and spinal manipulation to attain the Ottawa
neuropathic pain relief they desire.
WHAT DRUG ALTERNATIVES ARE ACCESSIBLE? WHY ARE
THEY NOT USED MORE?
Nutraceuticals – like vitamin supplements – may well be an important part – supportive or primary – in managing pain. One
study describes how adequately dosed
nutraceuticals may be helpful in managing peripheral
neuropathy. Neuropathy may show up as a result of
various types of reasons like diabetes,
alcoholism, unspecific, or iatrogenic. Plus, these compounds
like Vitamin B complex, alpha lipoic acid, L-acetyl carnitine, vitamin E,
magnesium, gamma linolenic acid, capsaicin, and Coenzyme Q were tolerated
well when used for extended periods of time. Some
patients stated that they experienced nausea and
vomiting when ALA was taken at 1200 mg or more though. (1,2) Why
then if doses can be adjusted are they not recommended
or used more? They’re not often covered by insurance, and patients, and doctors may not be familiar with what these options are and what benefits they may offer. (1) The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider is well
aware of such options. The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider helps Ottawa
chiropractic patients find their way with these options to boost
their benefits for Ottawa pain relief.
ONE GOOD OPTION: B VITAMINS
B vitamins work. How? B vitamins enhance
the effectiveness of morphine’s painkilling
effect of blocking pain sensation and weaken
chronic morphine tolerance. How is this beneficial? The
action of morphine is like the action of
neuropathic pain, burning pain that tracks a nerve from the spine
through an extremity like the leg or arm, coming to rest in the
feet, toes, or fingers. B vitamins reportedly lessen
neuropathic pain after peripheral nerve injury, sensory neuron
inflammation/compression as well as transient spinal cord ischemia (temporary
blockage of blood supply to the spinal cord). Including B vitamins in the pain control drug schedule for a patient with
neuropathic pain certainly could well be beneficial!
